6 O’Clock BS: Zen Lab Work

I love doing protein concentration determinations. There’s something calming about calculating dilutions, pipetting precise volumes, being able to trust the objective evidence of the OD280 readings.

Oh, the lies I tell myself when the work day runs long.

Yay! Moar dilutions, moar reps! Blarg. I mean…Oooooohm.

6 O’Clock BS: Gluten-Free Pizza

Tonight I made gluten-free pizza! I used a Red Mill Mix, but it required yeast and mixing and other related baking shit, so I think it counts as fancy cooking.

First, the crust:

Pizza Mix, Olive Oil, Eggs, Yeast in warm water

The yeast had to sit for a few minutes, then I added the eggs and 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Then the pizza flour mix was added in and mixed on medium for 1 to 2 minutes.

6 O’Clock BS – I

I’d love to find myself in the middle of a flash mob someday! What a great vehicle for expression and a memorable way to show that you’ve organized people to make a statement*. Speaking of – if anyone has a link to video of the California Domestic Workers “Respect” flash mob that was supposed to have happened on 8/21/12 at the Sacramento State Capitol can you post it in the comments? I found the instructional video on YouTube, but a brief search on YT and Vimeo hasn’t yielded video of the actual flash mob.

This one’s a little older. It was put on to celebrate (okay, probably advertise) the 50th anniversary of West Side Story. Fun!

*Or no apparent statement or art for art’s sake.

6 O’Clock BS: Creative Commons is Cool

You never know where your stuff is going to show up!

I received this email in my Flickr inbox recently:

Hi Brianne,

I love your photo of Foggy Blue Morning Dive! We used it on Adventure Awaits, a blog and storytelling site for Washington State Parks.

You’ll see your photo on one of our blog posts here of Go Discover: Scuba Diving: adventureawaits.com/2012/07/go-discover-scuba-diving/

Again, thanks so much for putting your photos in Creative Commons – we love profiling great captures of our parks.

Tee hee! I’m on a website for Washington State Parks promoting scuba diving. How fun!

Here’s the photo:

Foggy Blue Morning Dive

And being the awesome Creative Commons-respecting website they are, the photo links back to my Flickr account where I originally posted it. The only annoying thing is that while I’m now “Washington State Park Go Discover Scuba Diving” internet famous (got a whole 27 views on that there photo – w00t!), my little sister gets the photographer bragging rights. Damn it!
